Abstract: The boundary rigidity problem consists in determining a compact, Riemannian manifold with boundary, up to isometry, by knowing the boundary distance function between boundary points. In this paper we announce the result of our forthcoming article that one can solve this problem for generic simple metrics. Moreover we probe stability estimates for this problem.
